Patriotic Valentine

Sandy Allnock, of Operation Write Home, posted a "Veterans' Day Giveaway" this week.  In honor of Veterans Day, she is giving a couple of yards of a great patriotic striped ribbon to each of three winners. All you have to do is post a patriotic (red, white & blue) valentine card before next Sunday.   

Operation Write Home needs us to make and ship Valentines now, so they can get shipped overseas by the end of this year.  That way the Heroes will get them in time to send Valentines home to loved ones by mid-February.
The borders on this card were made with a "bubbles" corner rounder done along the edge.  The sentiment was created digitally, and punched with a 1" scallop punch.  The little red hearts are the punch-out "left overs" from a pop-up center-fold row of hearts.  The large red heart was made with the Stampin' Up! "movers and shapers" heart, and the creamy flourish heart was punched with the Stampin' Up! heart punch.  I had to add a bit of ribbon, since this card is for a "Sandy" challenge.
